Today the attractive single woman next door told me outright that she fancied me. And said I should come round later tonight if I "fancy a coffee and a snog".
So what's the problem, why the hell am I still at home posting on the RG forum? Well I think there could be a little emotional baggage with her. I'm really not after anything serious and maybe she isn't either, but if she is or just finds herself getting attached to me over time, I'll probably just let her down later if I encourage her now.
I did actually put my shoes on to go round tonight and did get to the door, but I just can't convince myself it would be a good idea. My social/love-life is pretty bare bones at the moment to be honest, but at least I'm sort of stable. I don't think I should go complicating things right now.
I do feel a bit bad though, I got the impression she might really be expecting me tonight and she might feel like I'm standing her up and feel rejected. By the sounds of things she's had a rough time of things with men lately and might get really upset over the rejection. I really don't like the thought of being responsible for upsetting someone like that.
I would go over and just explain, but that itself might give the wrong impression, and while I'm there one thing might well still lead to another. So I've just stayed home thinking better safe than sorry.
Or another way to look at it; I bottled it!
